This may be tempting enough to get me back into Second Life, which I haven't visited in a while owing to unexpected demands on my time. On the other hand, I might just go to the movie again.

Enjoy it quickly, before the corporate sharks smell blood in the water.

Hasn't some content related to the film already been taken down inworld? I've been sent a couple notes about that.

Interesting CNN report, partly echoing my own feelings after watching the movie. As a Second Life resident, my interpretation of Cameron's work is that this movie encourages us to choose a virtual life instead of the "real one". Votes for the beauty, battles and difficulties of a virtual world, and votes against the disillusioned and corrupted world of RL. And that's why I like Avatar.

"...choose a virtual life instead of the "real one"."

I haven't seen the movie yet, but my impression from the reviews and interviews is pretty much the opposite; yes, there is a freedom and exhileration in escaping the confines of reality in a virtual experience, but its true, most important power is to allow us to learn and grow so that we can change our reality for the better.

:) That's the difference between our interpretations - and wait till you can see the movie and its ending scenes; in my interpret, the movie Avatar says that the idea "we can change our reality for the better" is hopeless. Brutally hopeless.
